VIDEO HIGHLIGHT: CAGE THE ELEPHANT ‘CIGARETTE DAYDREAMS’

CTE_videoBowling Green, Kentucky’s band Cage The Elephant – Matt Shultz (vocals), Brad Shultz (guitar), Daniel Tichenor (Bass) and Jared Champion (drums) – share this nostalgically touching and exquisite video for ‘Cigarette Daydreams’. The cinematic experience, starring band’s singer Matt Shultz and Parisian actress Juliette Buch, is directed by top filmmaker Mark Pellington and it was premiered via Patrick Carney’s (of The Black Keys) Twitter…

Director Mark Pellington explains: “A murder mystery? A love story? Real life madness? “Cigarette Daydreams” is an ambitious music video/short film inspired by real events and fictional images. It is a fractured, hallucinatory love story hatched by myself and lyricist singer Matt Shultz. A tale of madness and mystery, the dark but melancholy story follows a young woman (Juliette Buchs, the real Ames Shultz) coming to terms with her past and her future.

Perhaps a search for a love by a woman trying to outrun her past? Ambiguity abounds as the film is a psychologically-fragmented story of yearning, memory, and desire. It counterpoints images of innocence and danger and revolves around a tour de force performance by the Parisian trained actress Juliette Buchs.”

Additionally, Cage the Elephant announce the release of The Live EP (digitally on October 7th 2014 via RCA Records), a thrilling 5-track collection recorded at the band’s concert at The Ogden Theater in Denver, CO on May 17th. CTE by Colin-Lane1
